The role of Acupuncture at our Gold Coast clinic can be a pivotal step towards reducing your pain and therefore improving your quality of life. Whether it be mild, moderate or severe, it can all affect your daily life, work and even social life. Living with pain can feel incredibly overwhelming and be debilitating. This is where our Gold Coast acupuncture clinic can assist you in returning back to living a full life – pain-free. But have you ever wondered how it actually works?
Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) has been a practice effectively used for thousands of years with the belief that to allow for great health, there needs to be a smooth flow of energy throughout the body. This natural energy is known as Qi (pronounced Chi). When blockages occur due to trauma, both physically or emotionally, illness, stress or grief, this can cause stagnation. With the combined use of very fine pointed needles and moxa, balance can be restored to the body and heal your natural energy of Qi.
